Loren Makes Learning Piano Fun Again!
My daughter had a horrible experience with another piano teacher before we moved here to Seattle. After a lot of time off, she was very nervous about starting lessons again. What if he gets mad at her if she doesn't practice enough? For the first few lessons, she seemed genuinely tense on piano lesson days. However, Loren has been nothing short of amazing with her. He found some popular songs she liked. He showed her how not only how to play but how to play with "style" and feeling. He even showed her how to improvise! Now, my daughter loves to practice and to show off all the progress she is making - which in turn allows her to progress even farther. We went a year where she was afraid to play for fear of criticism. Now after a few months, she can't walk past it without playing a song or 2! We are very grateful to Loren and can't recommend him highly enough!
Effective and patient
Yuko has been giving Japanese lessons to my 14 year old daughter to prepare her for a study abroad program. My daughter loves Yuko's gentle but effective teaching style. She uses a text book to go over basic grammar, reading and writing, as well as teaching conversational skills. She also gives homework assignments to help in-between session studying. Overall we're very pleased with our experience with Yuko, and my daughter is more confident to go to Japan now. Thank you!
Dalin is an EXCELLENT tutor. My only regret is that I did not connect with her sooner. All quarter long, I have struggled through my Economics class. I feel like I have learned more with Dalin in the hour I spent with her than my professor in 3 months. One aspect about her that I respect and am grateful for is her patience. She came up with ways that made it easy for me to understand the key concepts of Economics. All I can say is thank you, thank you, and thank you! I'll definitely contact her again with questions I have in the future.
Jacob is an outstanding tutor - truly - he is not the first we have used, so I can make comparisons. He makes the material very relatable to your student and is encouraging without being patronizing. He also keeps your student's interest when it flags as is bound to happen in an hour of studying a subject they are probably not fond of. If your child needs help in what Jacob offers, grab him. He is awesome.
John was very patient, professional and knowledgeable about the subject. He was also polite and always on time. I recommend him fully!
Vicky is an excellent tutor. She's very patient and has a great sense of humor. I can't recommend her enough.
Sophie has the perfect combination of tough/nice. She knows how to push yet she is also very compassionate and friendly. I have tried to learn to speak French but I have been so intimidated I couldn't progress. Everything changed when I found Sophie. I am happy to say I am finally speaking French and am excited about becoming more fluent. I couldn't be happier!
Dynamic and knowledgeable teacher.
I really enjoyed my lesson with Eric. He has a strong knowledge in photography, his explanations are clear with concrete examples. I'm looking forward my next lessons.
Katherine knows how to improve a student's skills
It's good to see that David is getting more confidence. Even though he needs to improve a lot in his school work, Katherine knows how he can get there. I hope he can graduate from ESL class this semester.
Super patient and very helpful
